A Louisiana man who admitted to getting into a fistfight with another driver Friday was killed in a car crash hours later, police said.

Daniel Walker, 31, was killed after he lost control of his vehicle and struck a tree Friday evening, Louisiana State Police said in a news release posted on its Facebook page. Walker was unrestrained and was ejected from the vehicle.

Just hours earlier, Walker was reportedly involved in a road rage incident that resulted in a fistfight with another driver in the middle of a busy road, according to WBRZ. An eyewitness recorded the fight, which was broken up by police. The officer issued both drivers a court summons at the scene and sent them on their way.
